Christmas trees are on sale at select garden centers and florists in Rome.
For Rome residents who wish to create a bit of Christmas magic in their own home, numerous outlets are selling real trees around the capital, from “viva” garden centers to florists.
Artificial Christmas trees can be picked up at many of the city’s larger department stores, such as Leroy Merlin and Coin.
Christmas trees are currently on sale at garden centers with prices from €60 to €180, or upwards of €200 if you are looking for a huge tree.
Garden centers will usually deliver the tree to your home for about €20, and in some cases, this includes collection.
This year, due to covid-19, some garden centers will only deliver trees to your door at street level, without coming inside your home.
Natural Green, on Via di Villa Betania 7 in the Villa Pamphilj area, has a reasonably good selection, as does Garden 3 Fontane, on Via Laurentina 90 in the EUR district.
Those living near the Trastevere and Marconi areas should check out the Fleur Garden points on Viale di Trastevere 193 and Viale Guglielmo Marconi 698.
The city’s Ikea stores in Porta di Roma and Anagnina offer small trees for €15 and a range of artificial versions.
Ikea also offers to take your tree back after Christmas in exchange for a voucher equivalent to the purchase price.
Many of the city’s florists also offer smaller Christmas trees, Poinsettias, door wreaths, and table decorations to add a touch of festive cheer to your home over the holiday season.
